Civico Archivio Fotografico di Milano

The Photographic Civic Archive of Milan was set up by the City Council in 1933 and began with material donated by the architect Luca Beltrami. This is one of the most important archives in Italy dedicated to preserving and promoting the photographic heritage. It holds 850,000 original photographs from 1840 to the present, precious testimony of the history and techniques of photography and the artistic heritage of Milan, Italy and Europe. Proof of social and political events, local and national, and of the exploration of the far and not-so-far East.
